How to treat your enemies.
Contributed by Richard Gunther
Story also available on our translated websites: Spanish, Portuguese
Long before Jesus told His followers to love their enemies, God said very much the same. – Slide 1
For example, God said if an Israelite saw his enemy’s ox wandering off … – Slide 2
… he should catch the ox and lead it back to his enemy. – Slide 3
And if an Israelite saw his enemy’s donkey wandering around, out of its paddock … – Slide 4
… he should catch that donkey and take it back to its paddock. – Slide 5
And if an Israelite saw a donkey struggling to carry a very heavy load … – Slide 6
… he should help the owner of the donkey and share some of that load. – Slide 7
So in God’s law and in the teaching of Jesus, God tells us to do something that is often very hard to do – love our enemies. – Slide 8
